How to access shopping cart in custom OrderInfoProvider

Andy Bochmann asked on May 18, 2019 05:37


Is there a way to access the shopping cart inside a custom OrderInfoProvider class? I've followed the documentation and wrote a custom SetOrderInfoInternal method to set the values of additonal custom fields on an order. The values for those fields are saved as custom fields on the ShoppingCartInfo object.

I'm basically tring to copy custom values from the cart to an order, during order creation.

Thanks, Andy

I've used var cart = ShoppingCartInfoProvider.GetShoppingCartInfoFromOrder(order.OrderID); in earlier versions of Kentico, but I believe current API should be the same a similar.

You can save your custom data into ShoppingCartItemInfo.CartItemCustomData which will become automatically OrderItemInfo.OrderItemCustomData when shopping cart destroyed and order is created.

ShoppingCartItemInfo.CartItemCustomData.SetValue("Name", Value);

Thank you. Roman, you're right, that doesn't work anymore. It will always return null.

I found another solution, which seems to work fine so far: var cart = ShoppingCartInfoProvider.GetShoppingCartInfo(orderObj.OrderCompletedByUserID, "SITENAME");

I also thought about using the CustomData property instead, however, I like having the fields defined on the class and the option to display those fields in the Kentico backend user interface.

Now I just have to find out how to set those fields when creating an Order directly in Kentico instead of the MVC application.
